Northland Laboratories has broken ground on the build-out of a new state-of-the-art food science center. The 33,000 square foot facility will house microbiology, chemistry, sensory, specialty, research and consulting services specific for the food and beverage industry.
“The new facility will expand capacity of current services provided and offer incredible new resources available with a full service food science center to include many research capabilities,” states D.J. Alwattar, president of Northland Laboratories.
In addition to the new facility in Mount Prospect, Ilinois, Northland Laboratories recently expanded its laboratory facilities in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The newly expanded 12,000 square foot facility was designed to increase capacity for microbiology and chemistry testing services, include a new area for its expanding Proficiency Testing services, and integrate new automation equipment used for scalability of testing.
“This positions Northland Laboratories to service the needs of the food and beverage industry for the immediate and long term future,” adds Alwattar.
Completion of the Mount Prospect, Illinois facility is scheduled for early 2017.
